Hi, a keen policy officer here trying to reach people who are looking after family or friends and convince them to get involved in decision making processes one means which is responding to consultations.
(a one sentence summary of consultation problem)
I have to get carers living in the community to get involved in public consultations and try and get their voices heard by decision makers
(how you might use e-consultation technologies to help)
e-consultation sounds great and forward thinking. It is a matter of finding out who or how many among our consultee group has access to computer and also what training requirements are out there.
(what do you need from the technologies and technologists)
I need simple formats, which are accessible, user-friendly and also cost-effective for our organisation which is a charity and users who are often living in poverty.
